Academic Advising

Engineering First Year (EFY) Students

Each engineering student is assigned an academic advisor after New Student Orientation, but prior to the start of their fall semester according to departmental preference.  The advisor’s name is shown at the top of the student’s degree audit and in the Student Center of their MyPack Portal.

Students have the primary responsibility for planning their individual programs and meeting graduation requirements.  The academic advisor or the departmental coordinator of advising can help you with academic, curricular and career planning.

At your advising meeting, your advisor will release your advising hold, so you can access and complete enrollment during your assigned time. Students must check their MyPack Portal to determine the specific day and time their enrollment window opens.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are assigned an advisor after they return their confirmation forms and pay their deposits. The advisor’s name is shown at the top of the student’s degree audit and in the Student Center of their MyPack Portal.

Students have the primary responsibility for planning their individual programs and meeting graduation requirements. At your advising meeting, your advisor will release your advising hold, so you can access and complete enrollment during your assigned time.

A transfer student who does not find an advisor listed on his or her degree audit in MyPack Portal within 30 days of paying the deposit should call Academic Affairs at 919.515.3263.

Questions concerning general degree requirements may be directed toward the departmental Coordinator of Advising at any time.
